Is Star Wars: Battlefront Worthy of a Sequel?

Some games are decent enough that they receive a yearly sequel; Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series, and Activision’s Call of Duty franchise to name a couple. Other games are just as good yet for whatever reason, due to underwhelming sales or internal development issues, fans might have to wait years, if ever to get a follow-up to a beloved game.

Despite being the best-selling Star Wars game of all time, Star Wars: Battlefront has yet to have a next-generation sequel. Isn't it worthy? (PS2, PS3, Star Wars Battlefont II, Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars: Battlefront III, Star Wars: Battlefront Online, Xbox, Xbox 360)

I wouldn't want DICE to touch SWBF3 thats for sure, after seeing how they took Battlefield downhill since BF2.

But yes, SWBF franchise needs to live on..

I have never understood the hype battlefront gets. I loved the original, but it gets boring easy. To boot, it didn't even really have a story.

Suppose I am in the minority when I say it is average. Nonetheless, I hope they do make a 'sequel' so people will finally stfu lol.

To me what stood out in comparison to other games was that it felt like a real war.

Especially Battlefront 2.

The maps are huge and there are many AIs or players (online) fighting at the same time. Plus the usage of many vehicles and ships add to the experience.

From what I've read a long time ago BF3 was suppose to have ground, air, and space battles at the same time. In BF2, Ground and air fights occurred at the same time depending on the map. Space battles were battle that needed to be fought separably, but they planned to combined them all. This would have increased that epic feeling of fighting in a war within the Star Wars realm.

Yeah that sounds like the only real way it could have improved to be honest.
No idea why they never made a third one, but I have accepted that its probably a pipe dream.

Never played BF2. Never knew you could play it online. If that is true, I fully understand the hype, and am now extremely depressed I never got to experience it.

I live in Australia, and ADSL broadband was only available in my Area in 2006 or 2007. It was the 256kb download as well. Basically I only experienced Warcraft 3 online during the ps2 era.

Yeah, the singleplayer was really only fun to play if you had a friend over. But the multiplayer was awesome...

Of course it is, it was an awesome game last gen.

I really liked the first game, playing as a random Rebel soldier or a Storm Trooper was really neat, far removed from the usual type of game that gets released in the Star Wars universe.

Battlefront 2 just kinda killed it for me, and it was purely just seeing Darth Vader and other characters wandering around. I just couldn't get over that stuff. But to say that Battlefront doesn't deserve a game on the 360/PS3 or next gen consoles is silly.

I wouldn't mind a sequel and I'm sure it'll get one eventually, if not a new reboot.

But I'd personally like to have a Knight of the old republic 3. I mean..
azshorty2003  +   934d ago
Agreed. I want KOTOR 3 more then anything. I was crushed when they announced the mmo, because I figured it would last for years like WoW and we'd never see a proper sequel.

BF3 is also high up on my want list.

Please make a new Tie Fighter game with 256 player space battles.

No more new Star Wars crap please.

WHY ARE YOU EVEN ASKING THIS???!!! Of course Star Wars battlefront is worthy of a sequel! I'm having flashbacks to staying up tell 3am, trying to finally win as the Rebels on Hoth.

When I wrote the article it was call "Worthy of a Sequel", but the editors wanted it changed to its current title "Is it Worthy of a Sequel".

Basically, it is a rhetorical question I guess they had in mind.
FuzzyPooka  +   932d ago
Very good article either way!
hawkeyejonjon  +   933d ago
Yeah its worthy but it is sad that battlefront 3 was cancelled.
Zha1tan  +   933d ago
yes please do something about this disney since lucasarts former management was to idiotic to listen to the fans.
mastershredder  +   933d ago
Just revive, finish and release Battlefront 3. Done.

I'm actually kinda worried now that Disney has their hands on these IPs. They don't exactly have a great track record for delivering high quality games that you would expect from a Disney standard, rather they just slap a game together in time for a movie/show release. Kingdom Hearts and games from the 8 and 16 bit era being an exception.

It's not so much the partnership games that will be questionable, but definitely the all in-house Disney interactive games.
